Last month I participated in the 30 Day Squat Challenge (which you can find here) which I rocked right up until Day 24 when I was hit with the flu and wasn’t able to stand/walk/get out of bed/stop whining for my mommy for days on end and am still recovering. I was very disappointed in myself for not being able to complete the challenge because I have always worked out sick and injured and this was the first time that literally felt I was unable to complete a task. (Although, one day last week, when I felt I was able to start squatting again I resumed where I left off….but apparently the flu left me unable to do math because I overshot my squats and instead of doing 225 I did 265. My ass and thighs were very sore the next few days.)
My new task is to complete the 30 Day Ab Challenge.
I was planning to start this challenge at the start of this month but, again, the flu hindered that. So I will be starting it very soon – probably next week, if not sooner. I want to be in full flu-recovery before I begin this challenge because I don’t want to fail again – and this challenge looks pretty intense. And to be honest, my tummy is just not up for the task yet (although I have been working my abs in my workouts). I’m hoping (HOPING) that I will be back to great health soon, hopefully by next week, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, at this point I’m wondering if this flu bug is something more.
Once I do start the Ab Challenge I will post about it and the results. I can truthfully say that my thighs are tighter and stronger from participating in the Squat Challenge and my goal is to begin it again either mid-month or at the start of June (I like to have an even 30 days to work with), so here’s aiming for that.
